This isMoreThis book collects Lisa Krons two extraordinary solo performance works. Best known for her ongoing work as a member of The Five Lesbian Brothers, Krons solo pieces are very personal examinations of both herself and her family history. This is singularly clear in 2.5 Minute Ride, where her writing deftly maneuvers between the tragic drama of the Holocaust and the wry comedy of her familys attempts to pursue pleasure at the local amusement park. This critically acclaimed work played to sold out audience for over six months at New Yorks Public Theatre. Also included is the riotous 101 Most Humiliating Stories, which first premiered in 1993, and in fact only consists of seventeen tales but each, as the author observes, has several humiliations. It recounts the adventures and misadventures of a self-described Big Lesbian as she tests the boundaries of decorum in social and professional situations.
